The Tenets of African Philosophy.

To Tip Or To Tithe – An American Dilemma

In the US economy, $3.50 an hour is a direct ticket to paupers’ paradise. Workers on such wages cannot pay half of their monthly bills let alone feed one child! They often have to borrow, with heavy interest rates accumulating at each turn of the month.

The Marihuana Crime And Its Roots In Racism

The Supreme Court of the USA clings to a policy that has its origins rooted strongly in racism and xenophobia, against Black lives, and whose principal aim and effect has been to ruin the lives of generations of Black people for absolutely no particular reason but for the myth of 'whiteness' and to make the most money for its industrial capitalists.

Our Environment – What the World Can Learn From Africa’s Past

In Africa, the human form has not been a prerequisite to holding rights. The oceans, rivers, forests, lands and ships still referred to in the feminine gender by traditional society, have long had an independent legal life, often with striking implications. African traditional law stands to teach us all – Africans as well - a great deal. It makes more sense than how the world is treating the environment.

Ethnocentrism in Ghanaian Politics is not Dangerous – Essamuah

Mr. Essamuah may think that the modern structure of democracy in Ghana is stable. And I can agree to a very general extent.
